You can't hide anything with a 235mm body on a 4-tec. I've had the big wheel/tires on a 4-tec and anytime you use a belt driven system car, you cannot sit the wheels in enuff to have the body cover the tires. What I did do though was cut down some of the wide rear tires and then the body fit over the car but then the stock plastic outdrives will crack and break. I replaced them too many times and just dumped that project all-together. Here's a few pics of mine. Oh and I had a RB Xenon R .21 in the car too. It was a animal in a cheap car that handled for little to nothing.

I have already had it to 75 with the 3.3 gearing changes and the stock super nitro foams. It took forever with the 3.3 to get there though, so i am thinking a high powered .21 will help in the process

Wow, you must have to be very smooth to keep that car going in straight line with those pizza cutter looking tires on it.

Miami, whatever the case may be bro. That is what I like to see, different combos. Now how much more power is there to be had using the 60% boat fuel? Noticable or not?

On 60% nitro there isnt MUCH a diffrence between, there is only a little added tourque over a modded motor on 30% which rounds out to about 2 extra teeth on the clutch bell which is only about a 5 MPH diffrence

same motor same set up BOTH modded one on 30% the other on 60% the 60% motor will be a little faster becuase of the fact you can add motor teeth to the bell but like always a little bit counts

to run 60% the motor has to be completly timed diffrently and motor SPECIFALLY for 60% nitro and thats where my homeboy octavio comes in to play he's bein doing it for years and leaves everything to perfection, another added plus about running boat fuel is the fact the boat fuel has more oil and seeing as i driveing my racer 2 on a street about 3,000 feet long and actually use about 1,500-2,000 feet i need to keep the car screaming that long with out risking it running out of oil content

even tho 60% nitro sounds like alot it also has 20% oil in it so it protects the motor alot and keeps everything lubbed and working great



BTW takeing a good look at my car HOLY HELL its dirty, ill tear it down in the next few days and clean everything the flash on the camera really brings out the dirt!

Thanks.

What Futaba reciever is that? I am going to get rid of my Spektrum junk and right now I am using the stock OFNA TX/RX combo and that is working just fine. The spektrum is waaaaay too unpredictable and has caused me to loose a car already.

Dayyyuumm. You put that big RTR engine in there and I guess with all that TQ it does move out very well. I love it when ppl tell you that it won't work and all that but you proved them wrong.....he,he,he. Does it still run good on top end with that motor? you get that engine ported or put a Picco P3 in there and WATCH OUT!

I really enjoy seeing what everyone else does and I also get ideas as well.

thanks to all that have shared information and pics.

OMG, I thought it was me or just interference from my 'hood. I agree that the Spektrum chit is just that........JUNK! I totally destroyed a FAST CD3 that was about 2 months old with a nasty Kangaroo that the head got damaged in the crash because the Spektrum lost radio contact and the built in failsafe didn't work. How much for a FASST with RX'ers?

Here's what that junk did. Every since I am using the stock 27MHz stuff, no more issues what-so-ever.

LOL, I would think that it wouldn't matter if you have even an inexpensive car. The damn Spektrum is supposed to be the chit but it is definately junk from what I have seen lately.

Yup. I only trust my cars to the Futaba radios. Now Im using the 3PK with the Fasst module. I trust this system all day. To put it in prespective, I can take my 1/5 scale sportline with a white body in the day time, as far as I can see it and still have total control of it. I tested this a few times for high speed run and I take it so far that I cant even tell which way they car is facing. Needless to say, that many times I've had to walk to it because when I think its facing foreward and pull the throttle, it just gets further away. If I had to guess, I'd say the fasst has more than a 1/4 mile range. Thats easily 1300 feet or more than 4 football fields.

Which is more then almost anyone would need in both directions to get to the 100mph mark! I have never actually had mine that far away from me yet, but i have a feeling that sometime this spring/summer i am gonna have it that far tryin to get into the 100mph club

The cf chassis was cut out by me using
a handheld router. A lot of tyme went into cutting
the cf and a boxcar load of carbide bits,the cf was
5mm thick.
